Memories

How I wish that I could make all these wonderful memories that I have of Jennifer come to life for just one more day....her smile, the way she would make me laugh, the way she was always planning and dreaming about the future, the smell of her hair, even the way she always left her cheese papers everywhere, always being on the phone, watching episodes of "Friends" and "Sex in the City" over and over again. How we take the little daily things people do for granted. It is those little daily habits that make up the person. Jennifer's treatments, medication, insulin shots were all a part of her. I miss asking her before each meal: "Jennifer, did you take your pills"? I miss asking her when I talked to her each day if she had taken her treatment. I know I probably drove her crazy, but I would do it again, if I had the chance. That was part of our daily life just like eating meals and taking a bath. Don't take the little things in life for granted....they are precious.

Thanks, Debbie, for the reminder. I'm getting off the computer right now so I can go snuggle up to a cute little boy and cherish the moment.
